Life Coaching Services Agreement Form
Very often you make choices to do or not do many things. Most of those choices may have an effect on your life’s balance, your effectiveness and contentment. If you desire a faster and easier growth in your personal and professional life, then a life coach is the right choice for you!
But...What's a life coach?
A life coach is more than just a counselor or consultant from whom you expect to get all of the answers and data you need. A life coach is not just another friend who cheers you on in everything you do. A life coach is a motivator and a guide that helps you succeed in life, by pushing you to look at things differently, discover what your obstacles or challenges might be, help you understand who you want to be, choose a course of action that takes you to where you want to be in life, and to stay on the right track.
There is a fine line between coaching and therapy, but a key difference between a life coach and a therapist is their focus. A therapist tends to be more focused on a specific problem you are dealing with, and helps you understand it, accept it, figure out what got you there, and find the answers you seek, among other things. That’s accomplished by searching deeply through your history from which you will most likely reach a level of intense emotions.
On the other hand, a life coach is a source of motivation more focused on solutions that get you from point A to point B, focused on reaching your full potential by asking questions that help you evaluate your purposes, obstacles and helping you create proactive steps to reach your aims.
A life coach may employ several processes to help you create effective strategies to achieve your goals: visualization, affirmations, meditation, relaxation, emotional freedom technique, hypnosis, neuro-linguistic programming, and many others. Sometimes discovering your ultimate intention and clarifying how you want to feel helps to kick-start a new process of realignment.

PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Acknowledgment of Service
By requesting a coach you are acknowledging that you understand that the coaching services you will be receiving from your coach are not offered as a substitute for professional mental health care or medical care and are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any mental health or medical conditions. You also understand that your coach is not acting as a mental health counselor or a medical professional. You also understand that coaching is not a substitute for counseling, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, mental health care or substance abuse treatment, and you will not use it in place of any form of therapy.
Disclaimer: *Please note that results may vary person to person. Some coaching experiences take longer than others.
In order to receive any coaching or consulting services, you accept the above statement and understand that you and only you are responsible for all of the choices you make. At no time is the coach responsible for your choices. Entering into a coaching agreement is an opportunity to enhance the well-being of your life or business through a partnership of co-creating with your coach. A life may offer expert advice in a particular area that is unique to each coach and their background; this is called “consulting”. Coaches may consult as part of their coaching agreement if requested by the client.
All information (documented or verbal) that the Client shares with the Coach as part of this relationship, is bound to confidentiality by the ICF Code of Ethics, but is not considered a legally confidential relationship (like in Medicine or Law).
You accept that any telephone numbers provided by you may be recorded for security purposes.
• Right to Request Confidential Communication: You have the right to request confidentiality about any issue you are involved with. You have the right to request that we communicate with you about Protected Health Information in a certain way or at a certain location. For example, you can ask that we only contact you at work or by mail. To request confidential communications, you must make your request in writing to the administrator listed above and specify how (email, phone, text or surface mail) or where you wish to be contacted. We will accommodate all reasonable requests.
• Right to Request Restrictions. You have the right to request a restriction or limitation on Protected Health Information we use or disclose about you for treatment, payment or health care operations, or that we disclose to someone who may be involved in your care or payment for your care, like a family member or friend. While we will consider your request, we are not required to agree to it in all circumstances, except in the case of a disclosure restricted to a health plan if the disclosure is for the purpose of carrying out payment or health care operations and is not otherwise required by law; and the Protected Health Information pertains solely to a health care item or service for which you, or the person other than the health plan on your behalf, has paid the covered entity in full. If we do agree to it, we will comply with your request. To request a restriction, you must make your request in writing to the applicable administrator listed above. In your request, you must tell us ( 1 ) what information you want to limit; (2) whether you want to limit our use, disclosure or both; and (3) to whom you want the limits to apply (for example, disclosures to your spouse or parent). We will not agree to restrictions on Protected Health Information uses or disclosures that are legally required, or which are necessary to administer our business.
